Greenland Annual Accumulation along the EGIG Line, 1959–2004, from Airborne Radar and Neutron Probe Densities, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set reports mean annual snow accumulation rates in meters water equivalent (m·w.e.) from 1959 to 2004 along a 250 km segment of the Expéditions Glaciologiques Internationales au Groenland (EGIG) line. Accumulation rates are derived from Airborne SAR/Interferometric Radar Altimeter System (ASIRAS) data and high resolution neutron-probe (NP) density profiles.
